DEPARTMENT OF LAW. 



Annexation of a Portion of the Village of River Grove 
to the City of Chicago. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion: • 

Department of Law,] 
Chicago, November 12, 1929. j 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago : 

Gentlemen— On October 24, 1929, your honorable 
body. passed an ordinance annexing a portion of the 
Village of River Grove. (See Council Journal, pp.. 
1307-8.) 

This ordinance contains a reference to a plat said 
to be attached thereto marked "Exhibit A". It ap- 
pears that no plat was attached to the ordinance, and 
on further consideration we deem it advisable that 
there should be no plat attached. 

Our reason for this is that the statute governing 
such annexation requires that an accurate map of 
the territory to be annexed shall be certified by the- 
Mayor and filed by the City Clerk in the office of 
the Recorder of Deeds. The statute also requires- 



November 21, 1929. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



1471 



the recording of a certified copy of the ordinance. 
Such being the case, there would be a duplication, 
and in case the two plats should happen to vary in 
some slight particular complications might arise and 
perhaps a question as to which is the authentic plat. 
We therefore recommend that the ordinance be 
repassed by your honorable body without the refer- 
ence to the plat. For your convenience we have 
prepared a new draft of same and submit it here- 
with.

"Section 5"; also by inserting therein the following: 

"Section 4. That an ordinance heretofore passed

ordinance passed on July 10, 1929 (Council Journal, 
pp. 709-710). The Comptroller gives as the reason 
for his refusal his doubt as to the validity of such 
obligations, saying that he fears he will make him- 
self liable if he proceeds as directed by the said 
ordinance. 

It is highly desirable that the validity of such 
bonds or certificates, and the validity of the statute 
recently passed by the General Assembly authoriz- 
ing the issuance of such obligations, should be passed 
on by the Supreme Court. 

The most expeditious way of securing a ruling 
from the Supreme Court on these points is by an 
original petition for mandamus in that court, pro- 
vided the court will take jurisdiction, which we hope 
to persuade the court to do. The action would 
necessarily have to be against the City Comptroller, 
however, and we do not want to bring an action of 
this kind against the head of a city department with- 
out a direct order from the City Council so to do. 

In case it is the desire of your honorable body 
that such suit should be brought, such desire should 
be expressed by ordinance or order directing the 
Corporation Counsel to bring the suit in the name 
of the City. We send herewith draft of such form 
of order, which will answer the purpose if you re- 
gard it with favor.

Amendment of Regulations for the Selection of 
City Depositaries.

tion, which was, together with the ordinance trans- 
mitted therewith, referred to the Committee on 
Finance: 

Department op Law,) 
Chicago, November 19, 1929.} 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago : 

Gentlemen — The ordinances under which deposi- 
taries of City funds are selected, and the regulations 
controlling them, w T ere adopted originally in 1905 
and were last amended in 1916. Since then condi- 
tions have materially changed in this city, both with 
respect to the character and size of the institutions 
named as depositaries and with respect to the 
amount and character of the deposits. Incidentally, 
we point to the passage of the School Law in 1917 
which has some bearing on the matter. 

During the current year some difficulties arose 
because the ordinance above mentioned no longer 
fit the conditions of the present day. In order to 
obviate these difficulties, and to afford better pro- 
tection to the City Treasurer, we recommend that 
Sections 28, 32 and 33 of The Chicago Municipal 
Code of 1922 be amended to meet the situation. 

We have prepared, and we submit herewith for 
the consideration of your honorable body, draft of 
an ordinance amending these three sections, which 
we suggest ought to be acted upon before bids for 
the coming year are solicited.

The concrete for the said concrete foundation 
shall be made by mixing by volume one (1) part of 
said Portland cement, two and one-half (2%) parts 
of said sand or two and one-half (2%) parts of 
said slag or limestone screenings and five (5) parts 
of said slag, limestone, or other stone together with 
a proper amount of clean water in a rotary batch 
mixer until the resulting concrete has been thor- 
oughly mixed. The said concrete shall then be 
spread upon the surface of the roadbed prepared as 
herein prescribed and rammed (until : thoroughly 
compacted. The upper surface of said concrete 
foundation shall be parallel with and three and one- 
half (3%) inches below the upper surface of the 
finished pavement. 

A binder course two (2) inches thick shall be 
laid upon said concrete foundation. 

A wearing course one and one-half (1%) inches 
thick shall be laid upon said binder course. 

The sand or limestone screenings used in making 
the mixture for the binder course and the sand used 
in making the mixture for the wearing course shall 
be clean, hard-grained, free from foreign matter, 
and so graded that all of said sand or limestone 
screenings can pass a four (4) mesh sieve and so 
that not more than six (6) per cent can be held on 
a ten (10) mesh sieve and so that not less than eight 
(8) per cent nor more than twenty-five (25) per 
cent can pass a ten (10) mesh sieve and be held on 
a forty (40) mesh sieve, and so that not less than 
thirty (30) per cent nor more than fifty-six (56) 
per cent can pass a forty (40) mesh sieve and be 
held on an eighty (80) mesh sieve, and so that not 
less than twenty (20) per cent nor more than forty- 
five (45) per cent can pass an eighty (80) mesh 
sieve. 

The limestone or other stone equal thereto for 
binder mixture used in the mixture for the binder 
course shall be clean, broken, hard and durable, free 
from foreign matter and so graded that all can pass 
a ring of one and five-eighths (1%) inches inside 
diameter and ninety (90) per cent thereof can be 
held on a ring of one-fourth (%) inch inside 
diameter. 

Levigated stone shall be construed to mean, for 
the purpose of this ordinance, levigated limestone, 
other levigated stone equivalent to levigated lime- 
stone for paving purposes, Portland cement or the 
finely divided mineral matter self contained in the 
refined native solid asphalt. 

The refined asphalt used in making the asphalt 
cement for the mixture for the binder course and 
the mixture for the wearing course shall be obtained 
from crude, native solid asphalt, except as herein 
provided. If crude, native solid asphalt is used and 
requires refining, it shall be heated to a temperature 
of not over four hundred fifty (450) degrees Fahren- 
heit until all water and light oils have been driven 
off. At least ninety-eight and one-half (98y 2 ) per 
cent of the bitumen contained in the said refined 
asphalt which is soluble in carbon disulphide shall 
be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. 

The refined asphalt used in making said asphalt 
cement may also be obtained by the straight re- 
duction of asphaltio petroleum until the refined 
asphalt has a consistency not softer than seven (7) 
millimeters penetration and not harder than two and 
one-half (2%) millimeters penetration, the pene- 
tration being made with a No. 2 Needle, weighted 
with one hundred (100) grams acting for five (5) 
seconds on the material at a temperature of seventy- 
seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. Ninety-eight and 



one-half (98%) per cent of the said refined asphalt, 
so obtained, shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra 
chloride. When fifty (50) grams of said refined 
asphalt is heated in an uncovered tin box five and 
one-half (5%) centimeters in diameter and three 
and one-half (3%.) centimeters in depth and is held 
at a temperature of three hundred twenty-five (325) 
degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then it shall 
have lost not over two (2) per cent by weight and 
the penetration of the residue thus obtained shall 
be not less than one-half (■%) of the penetration 
before such heating, said penetration being deter- 
mined as herein prescribed. The said refined asphalt 
shall have a ductility of not less than sixty (60) 
centimeters at five (5) millimeters penetration de- 
termined as herein prescribed, said ductility being 
determined by elongating a briquette, Dow form, of 
said refined asphalt at a uniform rate of five (5) 
centimeters per minute at a temperature of seventy- 
seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. 

The flux used in making the asphalt cement shall 

be the residuum obtained by the straight reduction 
of crude petroleum, which flux shall be tested with 
and found suitable to the refined asphalt to be used. 
At least ninety-nine (99) per cent of said flux shall 
be soluble in cold carbon tetra, chloride. The flux 
shall have a specific gravity of not less than ninety- 
four one-hundredths (.94) and not more than one 
and ten one-hundredths (1.10) at seventy-seven 
(77) degrees Fahrenheit as compared with water at 
seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit, and when 
tested in a Cleveland Open Cup Oil Tester, it shall 
not flash below a temperature of three hundred 
eighty (380) degrees Fahrenheit; and when fifty 
(50) grams of the said flux is heated in an uncovered 
tin box five and one-half (5%) centimeters in 
diameter and three and one-half (3%) centimeters 
in depth and is held at a temperature of three hun- 
dred twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit for five 
(5) hours, then it shall not have lost over three (3) 
per cent by weight. The flux shall have a penetra- 
tion of not "less than thirty-five (35) millimeters, the 
penetration being made with a No. 2 needle weighted 
with fifty (50) grams acting for one (1) second, the 
material being tested at seventy-seven (77) degrees 
Fahrenheit. 

The asphalt cement used in the binder course and 
in the wearing course shall be made from one (1) 
of said refined asphalts or from a mixture of any 
two (2) of said refined asphalts and said flux, if 
flux must be used, provided that the mixture of re- 
fined asphalts shall contain equal parts of each of 
the refined asphalts, and that the said asphalt 
cement shall contain not less than sixty (60) per 
cent by weight of refined asphalt or asphalts. The 
said asphalt cement shall be made by mixing and 
heating the said refined asphalt or asphalts and the 
said flux in a kettle at a temperature not lower than 
two hundred fifty (250) degrees Fahrenheit and not 
higher than three hundred fifty (350) degrees 
Fahrenheit. This mixture shall be thoroughly 
agitated when hot by steam, air or mechanical means 
until the said mixture has become homogeneous. 
The said asphalt cement shall have a penetration, 
determined as herein prescribed, of not less than 
two and one-half (2%) millimeters and not more 
than seven (7) millimeters. When fifty (50) grams 
of said asphalt cement is heated in an uncovered 
tin box five and one-half (5"%) centimeters in 
diameter and three and one-half (3%) centimeters 
in depth and is held at a temperature of three hun- 
dred twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit for five 
(5) hours, then it shall have lost not more than 
three (3) per cent by weight, and the penetration.

determined as herein prescribed, shall be not less 
than one-half (%) of the penetration before such 
heating. A briquette, Dow form, of the said asphalt 
cement of the consistency as used in this improve- 
ment shall have a ductility, determined as herein 
prescribed, of not less than twenty (20) centimeters. 

The mixture for the binder course shall be made 
by heating and intimately mixing the said lime- 
stone, or other stone, the said sand or the said lime- 
stone screenings and the said asphalt cement. The 
said mixture shall contain by weight five (5) per 
cent of bitumen soluble in carbon disulphide; 
twenty-five (25) per cent of said sand or said lime- 
stone screenings and seventy (70) per cent of said 
limestone, or other stone. The said mixture shall be 
spread on the said concrete foundation, and while in 
a hot and plastic condition shall be rolled to an 
even surface with a self-propelled roller weighing 
not less than ten (10) tons. The said binder course 
after ultimate compression shall have a thickness of 
two (2) inches, and the upper surface shall be 
parallel with and one and one-half (1%) inches 
below the upper surface of the finished pavement. 

The mixture for the wearing course shall be made 
by intimately mixing, while hot, the said sand, the 
said asphalt cement and the said levigated stone. 
The said sand and the said asphalt cement shall be 
heated separately to a temperature of not less than 
three hundred (300) degrees Fahrenheit, and the 
said levigated stone shall be intimately mixed with 
the said sand and then both shall be intimately 
mixed with the said asphalt cement. The said mix- 
ture shall contain, by weight, bitumen soluble in 
carbon disulphide, eleven (11) per cent; said levi- 
gated stone fourteen (14) per cent; said sand which 
can pass an eighty (80) mesh sieve and cannot pass 
a two hundred (200) mesh sieve twenty-five (25) 
per cent; said sand which can pass a forty (40) 
mesh sieve and cannot pass an eighty (80) mesh 
sieve, thirty-six (36) per cent; said sand which can 
pass a ten (10) mesh sieve and cannot pass a forty 
(40) mesh sieve, twelve (12) per cent; said sand 
which can pass a four (4) mesh sieve and cannot 
pass a ten (10) mesh sieve, two (2) per cent. The 
said mixture shall be spread at a temperature of 
not less than two hundred sixty (260) degrees 
Fahrenheit to an even surface and to such a depth 
that after ultimate compression, it shall have a 
thickness of one and one-half (1%) inches. The 
wearing course, while still hot and plastic, shall be 
rolled with a self-propelled roller weighing not less 
than ten (10) tons. Natural hydraulic cement shall 
then be spread over the wearing course in such 
quantity that one (1) barrel of natural hydraulic 
cement shall cover one thousand (1000) square 
yards of said wearing course. The said wearing 
course shall then be thoroughly compressed by roll- 
ing with a self-propelled roller weighing not less 
than ten (10) tons.

Proposed Creation of a Commission to Study the 
Control and Abatement of Unnecessary Noises. 

Whereas. Physicians and public health officials 
bave long recognized that the increase in unneces- 
sary noise, especially in our large cities, constitutes 
a distinct menace to the public health, and that its 
control and abatement demands serious consider- 
ation; and 

Whereas, An enormous number of complaints 
are received annually in the Chicago Health Depart- 
ment, almost all of them amply justified, from indi- 
viduals demanding that specific cases be dealt with, 
and in the majority of instances the Health Depart- 
ment has been unable to afford more than temporary 
relief; and 

Whereas, In recent years the operation of radio 
loudspeakers has been one of the chief causes of 
complaint, and represents one of the difficult prob- 
lems to be dealt with under our laws and ordinances; 
and 

Whereas, A commission has been appointed in 
New York City for the purpose of making a thorough 
study of the noise problem and recommending suit- 
able remedies; therefore be it 

Ordered, That the Committee on Public Health be 
and it is hereby directed to take up for considera- 
tion the advisability of creating an official com- 
mission to investigate the problems created by the 
noise of a. modern city, whose object shall be to 
report on: (1) the possibilities of reducing noise 
through the enforcement of existing ordinances; (2) 
a complete classification of noises, including scien- 
tific measurement of the principal city noises and 
recommendations for their control; (3) a scientific 
statement of the effect of noise on the human ear; 
(4) recommendations as to what constitutes the 
border line between inevitable and unreasonable 
noise; (5) an investigation of sound-absorbent con- 
struction for buildings; (6) experience of other cities 
in noise reduction; and (7) what additional laws are 
necessary to govern the noise situation.

Presentation of Facts in the Chicago Rapid Transit 

Company Litigation Regarding a Ten-cent Fare 

Pending in the United States District Court. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was, together with the pamphlet transmitted 
therewith, ordered published and referred to the Com- 
mittee on Local Transportation: 

I 

Department of Law, j 
Chicago, November 27, 1929.J 

To the Honorable the City Council of the City of 
Chicago : 

Gentlemen — The Corporation Counsel herewith 
submits a pamphlet regarding the litigation of the 
Chicago Rapid Transit Company (Elevated Lines) 
to obtain and maintain a ten cent fare. 

The case is now pending before Special Master 
Roswell B. Mason, duly appointed by the United 
States District Court, and evidence has been intro- 
duced in behalf of the Company. No evidence has 
been presented in behalf of the city due to lack of 
funds for that purpose. Proofs were heretofore 
ordered closed and the case set to be argued on 
November 20th last. At the request of the City a 
continuance was granted to December 20th next, on 
account of the withdrawal from the case of Con- 
gressman Frank R. Reid, Special Assistant Corpora- 
tion Counsel, who has been actively in charge of 
this litigation. 

In order to controvert the claims of the Chicago 
Rapid Transit Company and make possible a victory 
for the people, additional funds will be needed and 
should be provided. 

If the City Council votes money to enable us to 
present evidence, we will make application to the 
Special Master to reopen the case. In the event our 
motion to reopen the case is denied by the Special 
Master, we shall present the evidence to the court. 

If your Honorable Body votes an adequate ap- 
propriation, the Corporation Counsel will be able to 
continue the fight for the rights of the people. 

In the event that an appropriation is made no 
vouchers will be paid without being jointly approved 
by Alderman Joseph B. McDonough, Chairman of 
the Committee on Local Transportation, and by the 
Corporation Counsel. 

If your Honorable Body does not vote an appro- 
priation, the case may go against the City practically 
by default. 

Many millionsi of dollars in increased fares are 
involved in this litigation and the interests of the 
people are, therefore, vitally concerned. The Cor- 
poration Counsel feels that he would not be doing his 
full official duty if he omitted at this time to make 
this situation entirely plain and clear to the mem- 
bers of the City Council. 



In the event of your refusal to provide funds, the 
Corporation Counsel requests that your Honorable 
Body forthwith instruct, him as to what the City 
Council desires the Corporation Counsel to do in the 
further conduct of this litigation. 

A vote against this appropriation is a vote in the 
interest of the Chicago Rapid Transit Company and 
against the interest of the people. 

Respectfully yours, 

(Signed) Samuel A. Ettelson, 

Corporation Counsel. 

II 

condensed history op the litigation op the 
chicago rapid transit company to main- 
tain a ten cent fare 

The following is a brief history of the litigation 
of the Chicago Rapid Transit Company in its effort 
to maintain a ten cent fare: 

On February 14, 1928, the Chicago Rapid Transit 
Company applied to the Illinois Commerce Commis- 
sion for an increased rate of ten cents in lieu of the 
then prevailing rate of three rides for twenty-five 
cents and also asked for the abolishment of certain 
passes. On hearing before the Illinois Commerce 
Commission that body denied the application for 
such an increased fare and by its order continued 
the old rate of three rides for twenty-five cents. 

At the hearing before the Illinois Commerce Com- 
mission the evidence by the attorneys for the Chi- 
cago Rapid Transit Company consisted of an old 
valuation of its properties made in 1921, together 
with valuations of additions made since that time. 
At the close of the company's case, the City's lawyers 
raised the point that this evidence was insufficient 
to authorize a present increase of fares and cited 
legal authorities to support this contention. The 
Commission held that this contention of the City's ' 
was well-founded and entered an order denying an 
increase of fares and fixing the old fare of three 
rides for twenty-five cents as a reasonable rate of 
fare. 

The Chicago Rapid Transit Company then .filed a 
bill of complaint in the United -States District Court 
to enjoin the enforcement of the order, claiming 
that such a rate would be confiscatory and in viola- 
tion of the 14th amendment to the Constitution of 
the United States. 

The United States District Court then issued a 
temporary injunction restraining the enforcement of 
the order of the Illinois Commerce Commission and' 
permitted the charging of a ten cent fare, and re- 
ferred the entire matter to Special Master Roswell 
B. Mason to take evidence and report to the court. 

The City of Chicago was not made a defendant, 
but secured permission from the federal court to in- 
tervene in order to protect the car riders of the City 
of Chicago and to prevent the continuance of the 
ten cent fare. 

In June, 1929, the Chicago Rapid Transit Company 
completed its introduction of evidence before the 
Master in Chancery including engineers' appraisals of 
its property. One appraisal was submitted by James 
Walker, Consulting Engineer, showing the total 
value of the company's properties as $146,155,175.00, 
and another by Sanderson & Porter appraising the 
properties at $160,0<38,298.0'0. 

In order to controvert the evidence of the Chicago 
Rapid Transit Company the City must be prepared 
to show its valuation of the properties. To obtain

COMMUNICATIONS ETC. 



1545 



this evidence it is necessary to employ expert legal 
counsel, engineers and real estate appraisers in 
preparation of the defense to the claims made by 
the Chicago Rapid Transit Company. 

While in fact the Illinois Commerce Commerce 
Commission is responsible to the car riders because 
the action was initiated against the commission, the 
entire burden of the case has fallen solely on the 
City of Chicago. 

If the City is victorious, this litigation will save 
the patrons of the Chicago Rapid Transit Company 
many millions of dollars. 

From the very beginning it was evident to counsel 
representing the City of Chicago that the attitude 
of the Illinois Commerce Commission was one of 
indifference in the defense of this case before the 
United States District Court. Considerable data and 
information as to the value of the properties of the 
Chicago Rapid Transit Company and its receipts and 
expenditures, which were requested by the City's 
representatives, could not be obtained, the Illinois 
Commerce Commission claiming that some had been 
lost and that the furnishing of the data and informa- 
tion requested would involve a great amount of work 
far beyond the capacity of their clerical and expert 
staff. 

Being hampered by lack of sufficient appropria- 
tion the entire burden of the defense has fallen upon 
the City's legal representatives who have had to do 
the work of engineers and accountants as well as 
lawyers. Hundreds of documents were examined. 
By cross-examination of the company's witnesses 
sufficient evidence was developed to warrant further 
investigation of the company's books and records.

LETTER SUBMITTED BY SPECIAL ASSISTANT CORPORATION 
COUNSEL FRANK R. REID AND EDWARD C. HIGGINS 

Chicago, March 14, 1929. 

Hon. Samuel A. Ettelson, Corporation Counsel, Chi- 
cago, Illinois: 

Sir — I beg to advise that on yesterday at the hear- 
ing before the Master in Chancery in the elevated 
rate case, counsel for the Chicago Rapid Transit 
Company stated that they expected to have their 
engineers' appraisal of the Company's properties 
ready for introduction into evidence about April 1st, 
and that the present value of the properties is con- 
siderable more than $139,000,000.00. 

If the City of Chicago is to present its case prop- 
erly, it will be necessary for it to have engineers and 
real estate appraisers make a valuation of the prop- 
erties of the elevated company to offset the claims 
of the Chicago Rapid Transit Company, and also to 
have accountants prepare the necessary data, sum- 
maries, and exhibits, showing particularly the actual 
money invested in .the properties. Additional at- 
torneys should also be employed in order that the 
City's evidence may be analyzed and properly pre- 
sented if the case is to be expedited. 

My attention has been called to a statement in 
the press attributed to a member of the Illinois 
Commerce Commission to the effect that the en- 
gineering staff of the Commission would be glad to 
undertake an appraisal of the Company's properties, 
if requested by the City of Chicago. 

It is the duty of the Illinois Commerce Commis- 
sion to defend this suit, to make an appraisal of 
the Company's properties, and such accounting in- 
vestigations as may be necessary. This burden has 



fallen on the City of Chicago only because it has 
been evident that the Commission did not intend to 
do so. 

As you know the Illinois Commerce Commission 
is the original defendant in the present case, and is 
more responsible in this matter to the car riders 
than is the City of Chicago, the suit having been 
brought against the members of the Commission, 
the Governor, and the Attorney General. The City 
of Chicago was not joined as a defendant, but secured 
permission of the Federal Court to intervene to try 
to protect the car riders and prevent the continuance 
of the 10c fare. 

However, the Commission has taken practically 
no part in the defense of the case. An Assistant At- 
torney General has appeared at only a few of the 
hearings before the Master when the taking of 
testimony began, and stated that he was not able to 
secure the full co-operation of the Commission in 
this case. 

The burden of the defense has been entirely upon 
the City's counsel, who have had to do the work of 
engineers and accountants, as well as of lawyers. 
We have examined hundreds of documents and ex- 
tracts from the books and records of the Company, 
and by cross-examination of the Company's wit- 
nesses have developed sufficient facts to warrant a 
further investigation of its books and records. For 
example, we have brought out the following points, 
among others: 

1. The millions of passengers per year are car- 
ried by the Chicago, Aurora & Elgin Railroad 
and the Chicago, North Shore & Milwaukee 
Railroad, all of whom are entitled to ride free 
on the lines of the Chicago Rapid Transit Co. 

2. That the Company's advertising privileges are 
"farmed out" to another company, which 
makes the profit on it instead of the elevated 
company using that profit for the benefit of 
the car riders. 

3. That the Company has piled up a depreciation 
fund of over two million dollars with money 
furnished by the car riders, and now wants to 
increase that amount, 

4. That the Niles Center extension is operated at 
a loss of over $225,000.00 a year, at the ex- 
pense of the car riders of Chicago. 

5. That the Company wants the car riders to 
furnish it nearly a million dollars a year ad- 
ditional to "dress up" its properties, which its 
General Manager testified is not needed for 
efficiency or safety. 

The Company holds that in this suit it is entitled 
to a 10c fare because the order of the Illinois Com- 
merce Commission stated that the evidence in the 
case showed that the value of the Company's prop- 
erties would not be less than $92,588,105.72, and 
relies on the further statement by the Commission 
that 

"It is unquestionably true that the Company is 
not receiving the full return on its investment, 
which the courts have decided is a reasonable re- 
turn." 

The Company further holds that the City cannot 
question the contracts between the Company and 
the other utility companies under a common owner- 
ship, management and control, because those con- 
tracts were approved by the Commission. 

In the case before the Commission out of which 
the present suit arose, no appraisal of the Com- 



1546

pany's properties was made by the Commission, its 
findings being based upon valuations, etc., in a prior 
case before it decided in 1921, with additional prop- 
erties brought down to the date of decision. 

Counsel for the City of Chicago during the present 
case have endeavored to secure the active assistance 
and co-operation of the Illinois Commerce Commis- 
sion, but the assistance rendered has been of no 
practical help. Shortly after the hearings before 
the Master were commenced, a conference was had 
between counsel for the City and the Chairman, the 
Chief Accountant, and the Chief Engineer of the 
Commission, an Assistant Attorney General, and 
several employes of the Commission, at which time 
we submitted a list of about 46 questions which we 
requested the Commission to have answered. An- 
swers to some of these questions were subsequently 
furnished, but were so meager and indefinite as to 
furnish no substantial assistance whatever, as will 
be seen from the copies attached hereto. Some of 
the data requested have not yet been supplied. 

On September 4, 1928, a letter was addressed to 
the Chairman of the Commission requesting that the 
following material be made available for study and 
use by counsel for the City of Chicago : 

1. The exhibits and briefs filed in Case No. 8530 
before the Public Utilities Commission by the 
Companies, the City of Chicago, the neighbor- 
ing cities, and the Commission. 

2. The exhibits filed in Case No. 10850' before the 
Illinois Commerce Commission by the Com- 
pany, and the exhibits prepared by the Com- 
mission in that case but not made a part of 
the record. 

3. A transcript of the testimony taken and oral 
arguments made in Case No. 10850. 

4. The annual reports filed with the Commission 
by the Chicago Rapid Transit Company for 
the years 1924, 1925, 1926 and 1927. 

5. All of the annual reports filed by the four 
constituent companies of the present Com- 
pany. 

In answer to this request we were informed that 
the exhibits, etc., in Case No. 8530, decided in 1921, 
had been mislaid in the files in Springfield and 
could not be located, except two or three which were 
furnished. We were further informed that the 
studies made by the Commission in Case No. 10850, 
the recent case, not made a part of the record, were 
considered confidential and could not be disclosed, 
and that the annual reports of the Companies could 
not be removed from the Commission's office, but 
might be examined there. 

Subsequently, the Comimission's own counsel, an 
Assistant Attorney General, who was supposed to 
be representing it in this case, requested the same 
material from the Commission, and received the 
same reply. 

On September 25, 1928, a letter was addressed to 
the Chairman of the Commission requesting that 
counsel for the City of Chicago be furnished certain 
data and information relative to the operation of the 
Chicago, North Shore & Milwaukee Railway Com- 
pany and the Chicago, Aurora & Elgin Railway Com- 
pany over the right of way of the Chicago Rapid 
Transit Company. To this request the Commission 
replied that it was unable from the information on 
file with it to furnish the data requested. 

On October 9, 1928, a letter was addressed to the 
Secretary of the Commission requesting that the 



accountants of the Commission procure the infor- 
mation desired from the books and records of the 
two companies, to which the Secretary replied on 
October 10', 1928, as follows: 

"Eon. Edward C. Higgins, 

"Assistant Corporation Counsel, City of Chicago, 

"511 City Hall, 

"Chicago, III.: 

"Dear Sir — Receipt is acknowledged of your let- 
ter of October 9th, requesting that the Commis- 
sion have its accountants examine the books and 
records of the Chicago, North Shore & Milwaukee 
Railroad and the Chicago, Aurora & Elgin Rail- 
road for the purpose of furnishing to you certain 
details with respect to the origin and destination 
of passenger, freight and miscellaneous traffic. 

"Your request will be given consideration by 
the Commission and no doubt such action will be 
taken as is within legal limitations of the Com- 
mission's power and consistent with the discharge 
of business before the Commission. For your 
information, however, I may say that the Com- 
mission's staff of accountants have much work 
ahead of them on uncompleted assignments in 
connection with important matters now pending 
, before the Commission which will have to be 
completed before new assignments are made. 

"The preparation of the data requested by you 
will involve a long and tedious investigation and 
with the limited force at our command will con- 
sume a considerable time. It is the desire of the 
Commission to co-operate with you in this matter 
in every reasonable way consistent with the Com- 
mission's powers and duties and the facilities at 
its command. 

"Yours very truly, 

(Signed) "Julius Johnson, 

"Secretary." 

Nothing further has been heard from the Commis- 
sion, and the data requested have not yet been fur- 
nished. 

It will be seen from the above that the Commis- 
sion is either unable or unwilling to furnish any 
effective assistance in this case, and in view of the 
position taken by it in its order, as quoted above, I 
do not believe the City of Chicago should rely upon 
the Commission to win this suit. 

Of course you realize that if no evidence is intro- 
duced on behalf of the City, the Company's valuation 
of its properties might be accepted by the Master 
and the Federal Court, and the Company might have 
a foundation to charge a ten cent fare or even more. 

Respectfully yours, 

(Signed) Frank R. Reid, 

Special Assistant Corporation Counsel.

LETTER OP ACTING CORPORATION COUNSEL 
JAMES W. BREEN 

Chicago, March 18, 1929. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I have been advised that at a hearing 
of the case of the Chicago Rapid Transit Company 
v. The Illinois Commerce Commission et al. on March 
13, 1929, the counsel for the Chicago Rapid Transit 
Company stated that they expected to have their

engineers' appraisal of the Company's properties 
ready for introduction in evidence about April 1, 
1929, and I am also advised that the counsel for 
the Chicago Rapid Transit Company claim that the 
evidence that they will present will fix the valuation 
of the properties of the said Chicago Rapid Transit 
Company considerably higher than $139,000,000.00. 

It is my opinion that if the City of Chicago is to 
present its case properly it will be necessary for 
the City to have engineers and real estate appraisers 
make a valuation of the properties of the Elevated 
Companies in order to be in a position to offset the 
extravagant claims of the Chicago Rapid Transit 
Company, and also to have accountants prepare the 
necessary data, summaries and exhibits showing 
particularly the actual money invested in the prop- 
erties. 

As you well know, the Illinois Commerce Com- 
mission is the original defendant in the present case, 
the suit having been brought against the members 
of the Commission, the Governor and the Attorney 
General. The City of Chicago was not joined as a 
defendant, but secured permission of the Federal 
Court to intervene in order to protect the car riders 
and prevent the continuance of the 10 cent fare. I 
am informed, however, that the Illinois Commerce 
Commission has taken practically no part in the de- 
fense of the case, and that practically the entire 
burden of the defense has been upon the City's 
counsel, who have had to do the work of engineers 
and accountants as well as that of lawyers. They 
have examined hundreds of documents and extracts 
from the books and records, and by cross-examina- 
tion of the Company's witnesses have developed suf- 
ficient facts to warrant a further investigation of 
its books and records. 

In view of the importance of this litigation, I 
recommend that your Honorable Body appropriate 
a sufficient amount of money to enable us to employ 
engineers, real estate appraisers and accountants, 
and that such action be taken by your Honorable 
Body at the earliest date possible. 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed) James W. Breen, 

Acting Corporation Counsel.

LETTER SUBMITTED BY SPECIAL ASSISTANT CORPORATION 
COUNSEL FRANK R. REID 

Chicago, June 10, 1929. 

Eon. Samuel A. Ettelson, Corporation Counsel, City 
Hall, Chicago, Illinois: 

Dear Sir — I beg to advise that at the hearing this 
morning before the Master in Chancery in the ele- 
vated rate case, the Chicago Rapid Transit Company 
completed the introduction into evidence of its en- 
gineers' appraisals of its properties. 

These appraisals were made by James Walker, 
Consulting Engineer, of Chicago, and the firm of 
Sanderson and Porter of New York and Chicago, and 
show the reproduction cost new as of July 5, 1928, 
of the owned and leased properties of the elevated 
company, as follows : 

By James Walker 

Owned Property $168,120,047 

Depreciation 25,752,339 $142,367,708 

Leased Property $ 4,342,629 

Depreciation 555,162 3,787,467 

Total $146,155,175 

By Sanderson & Porter 

Owned Property $162,841,035 

Cost to Restore to 
First-Class Condition. 6,669,458 $156,171,577 



Leased Property $ 3,972,721 

Cost to Restore to 
First-Class Condition. 106,000 



Total. 



3,866,721 

$160,038,298 

The leased property referred to above as included 
in both appraisals is the property owned by the 
Chicago Junction Railroad Company and operated 
under lease by the Chicago Rapid Transit Company, 
known as the Kenwood and Stock Yards Branches of 
the South Side Division. The attorneys for the 
Company have announced that they will not in- 
clude in the appraisal of the properties the leased 
lines on the North Side and Metropolitan Divisions. 

At the hearing before the Master this afternoon, 
the Company introduced an exhibit prepared by 
Arthur Young & Company, Accountants and Auditors, 
showing the cost of the elevated company's proper- 
ties to June 30', 1928, to be $96,210,534.17. 

The Company's attorneys have stated that the 
next hearing,probably Wednesday or Thursday of 
this week, they expect to have ready for introduc- 
tion an exhibit showing the Company's income ac- 
count for the year August 1, 1928, to August 1, 
1929 (actual and estimated), which will complete 
their case. 

I must be able to advise the Master within the 
next few days as to the City's intention in regard 
to the introduction of evidence, and I shall appre- 
ciate it if you will advise me whether or not an ap- 
propriation is to be made available for the employ- 
ment of engineers, real estate appraisers, account- 
ants, etc., to prepare an appraisal of the properties 
of the elevated Company on behalf of the City. If 
this appropriation is not made, of course the case 
will be decided by the Master on the testimony of- 
fered on behalf of the Company only, and attacked 
only as to its correctness and sufficiency by the ex- 
tended cross-examination which I have made of the 
Company's witnesses.

JOURNAL--CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO. 



November 27, 1929. 



The Illinois Commerce Commission has taken no 
part in the defense of the case, and the matter is 
practically at default -so far as the introduction of 
evidence is concerned on behalf of all the defendants 
except the City of Chicago, an intervenor. 

It will be useless for the City of Chicago to rely 
upon the Commission for any assistance whatever 
in winning this suit, and if the City is to make any 
real and effective effort to save the car riders mil- 
lions of dollars a year which they may be required 
to pay in higher fares, it could well afford the ex- 
penditure of the comparatively small amount which 
would be necessary to employ competent persons to 
prepare the City's evidence. 

Respectfully yours, 

(Signed) Frank R. Reid, 

Special Assistant Corporation Counsel.

LETTER OP CORPORATION COUNSEL SAMUEL A. ETTELSON 

Chicago, July 9, 1929. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — This is formally to notify you that 
Special Master Roswell B. Mason, in the case of Chi- 
cago Rapid Transit Company vs. Moynihan et al. 
(the Elevated Fare. Case), in which the City of 
Chicago is an intervening defendant, on Monday, 
July 8, 1929, entered a rule upon all defendants to 
close their proofs within ten days and continued the 
case for further hearing to Tuesday, July 16, 1929, a 
copy of which order is attached hereto. 

It, therefore, will be necessary for the City of 
Chicago to place in evidence at that time an ap- 
praisal of the property of the Chicago Rapid Transit 
Company and evidence of expert accountants and 
real estate valuators, if the evidence of the Chicago 
Rapid Transit Company is to be contradicted. Upon 
a failure so to present evidence in behalf of the City 
the Master will determine the case exclusively upon 
the evidence introduced in behalf of the Chicago 
Rapid Transit Company. The evidence offered by 
the Chicago Rapid Transit Company included an 
appraisal of the property showing a claimed valua- 
tion of over one hundred sixty million dollars 
($160,000,000.00) and included a request by the Com- 
pany for nearly one million dollars ($1,000,000.00) 
more for operating expenses. 

I desire again to call your attention to my former 
communications ' to the City Council, to the Com- 
mittee on Finance and to the Committee on Local 
Transportation, which asked for an appropriation 
so that this evidence might be obtained and used 
in this case before the Master in Chancery. 

It is unnecessary for me to remind you that with- 
out thq funds as requested in my previous letters 
it will be impossible for us to employ engineers, 
real estate appraisers and accountants in the prep- 
aration of a defense to the claims of the Chicago 
Rapid Transit Company and to the high valuations 
which the elevated railroad company has introduced 
in evidence in the case. The case, therefore, will 
have to be determined by the court upon the evi- 
dence as presented by the Chicago Rapid Transit 
Company.

CHICAGO'S BUDGET PROBLEM FOR 1930. 
STATEMENT PREPARED BY THE COMMITTEE ON FINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL. 

In order that a complete understanding may be had as to the facts leading up to the present deficit of 
more than $13,000,000.00 in the general corporate fund of the City of Chicago and the shrinkage of current 
revenue for the year 1930 in excess of $6,000,000.00', and the need for reducing the operating budget of the 
City of Chicago by more than $9,000,000.00 for the year 1930, the following information is given: 

The general corporate fund of the City is that derived from the City's percentage of the taxes and from 
miscellaneous sources consisting of license and permit fees, rents, franchise compensations, etc. This fund is 
used for paying the operating expenses of the City, such as police and fire protection, maintenance and 
operation of the street lighting system, Health Department activities, street cleaning and garbage removal, 
operation of the municipal courts, the cost of conducting elections, the maintenance and operation of bridges, 
and all other miscellaneous expenses in maintaining the city government of Chicago. . 

All references in this explanation are to the general corporate fund of the City. 

At the end of the year 1926, the City had a deficit of $1,997,466.51. The budget for the year 1927 was 
drafted by the Committee on Finance in the usual way and during its consideration, on account of the 
quadrennial assessment which was to be made in 1927, the Comptroller certified to the Committee on 
Finance that he anticipated an increase in property values for taxation purposes to the extent of 
$300,000,000.00 over that anticipated for 1926. All of this occurred before valuations for the years 1926 and 
1927 were known. 

The valuations for 1926 proved to be $152,000,000.00 less than the estimated valuations, which accounts 
largely for the deficit of the year 1926. The Comptroller had previously thereto made a public statement 
that there would be sufficient income, due to increased property values, to materially increase the pay of 
members of the police and fire departments. After the Comptroller had made such public statement and 
certified to such increased property values and recommended the same in his budget estimates submitted to 
the City Council, there was nothing to be done but to approve such increase in salaries. 

A change in administration of the City government occurred in April, 1927, and shortly thereafter, on 
May 2, 1927, the then Comptroller submitted a statement to the City Council calling attention to the fact that 
the surplus of 1926 previously reported as $2,177,351.90 and included in the Comptroller's estimate in con- 
nection with the 1927 budget had been reduced to a deficit of $1,997,466.51, or a total change in the financial 
situation of $4,174,818.41, and that the City faced a deficit on December 31, 1927, on the basis of valuations 
determined for 1926 and the tax rate then existing of $7,957,469.75. The Comptroller also called attention 
to the fact that the City's power to issue bonds for the payment of construction work had practically been 
exhausted. 

In order to avoid this deficit and to permit the City to sell bonds to carry on construction work prev- 
iously authorized by the voters, the State Legislature was requested to increase the City's tax rate and to 
change the law so that the full value of taxable property might be applied for taxing purposes instead of 
the 50% basis then prevailing. This relief was granted by the Legislature of 1927. However, several months 
thereafter, it became known that the taxable property values had been increased by the Board of Assessors 
and the Board of Review by an amount of about $486,000,000.00. 

The Comptroller's annual report for the year 1927 indicated that the City closed the year with a deficit 
of $1,318,548.02. Thereafter, on account of attacks on the taxes levied in the year 1927 and through other 
adjustments, the deficit for the year 1927 was increased to $5,446,938.93. This deficit might largely have 
been obviated, had the City known in time the amount of the assessed valuations and the tax rate which was 
to be used during the year 1927. As it was, on account of the tax levy having been passed early in 1927, the 
City was unable to take advantage of its full tax rate. 

Then followed the preparation of the budget for the year 1928 in the same manner as had been prac- 
ticed for many years. The expenditures for that year amounted to $58,414,170.11. The revenue from mis- 
cellaneous sources amounted to $16,313,000.00 The estimated net tax was placed at $44,048,182.72. This 
latter amount was produced by anticipating an increase in valuations over 1927 by $100,000,000.00. The 
estimated deficit on December 31, 1928, was $3,499,926.32. 

During the year 1928, the State Tax Commission intervened and demanded a complete assessment of all 
property in Cook County for the year 1928. The budget for the year 1929 was then prepared, and again the 
same methods were adopted as in previous years and an increase of $100,000,000.00 in taxable property was 
anticipated over that previously anticipated for the year 1928. A tax rate of $1,075 per $100.00 assessed 
valuation was applied instead of $1,125 authorized by law. The 1929 Legislature was asked to reduce the 
tax rate for the City Corporate purposes to $1,075. 

On June 3, 1929, the City Council passed a resolution upon the recommendation of the Committee on 
Finance requesting the State Legislature to pass the bill pending before that body, which reduced the tax 
rate from $1,125 to $1,075 per $100.00 assessed valuation. This recommendation was made due to the fact 
that the assessed valuations were greatly increased for 1927 after the new tax rate was granted and it was 
hoped that the increase in valuations would prevail. 

Miscellaneous revenues of 1929 were estimated at $15,778,959.00, and the net 1929 taxes were estimated 
at $43,057,985.71. It was further estimated that there would be collected on account of 1927 taxes in liti- 
gation, $1,917,473.10 and that there would be further adjustments of accounts amounting to $2,104,288.57 
which would produce a total resource in 1929 of $62,508,706.38. Subtracting the deficit of December 31, 

1928, amounting to $3,499,926.32, from the estimated available sum of $62,508,706.38 would produce an esti- 
mated net resource available for expenditure in 1929 of $59,008,780.06. The estimated expense of 1929 was 
placed at $58,906,222.31 and this budget plan would have produced an estimated surplus on December 31, 

1929, of $102,557.75. 

. During the year 1929, it had been stated by those in charge of modernizing the assessment methods of 
Cook County that they expected a substantial increase in assessments on account of the revaluations. Some 
of the Press of Chicago and public sentiment demanded that the police force be substantially increased, rang-

ing from 1,000 to 4,000 men in number. The Committee on Finance was given assurance by Press articles 
and by others that the taxable property would surely be increased sufficiently to pay for the added police 
force. After many days of deliberation and discussion, the City Council authorized the employment of 750 
policemen on the theory that the total increased valuations on property assessments would be sufficient to 
produce the necessary tax money to pay this additional expense. 

The above recital is the way the situation appeared to the Comptroller and the City Council in June, 
1929, as is evidenced by the Comptroller's report to the City Council on June 26, 1929. 

Due to the order of the State Tax Commission aud the necessary time required to make the reassess- 
ment of taxable property, there has been no collection of taxes for the year 1928 and no certain time as to 
when the taxes for the year 1928 or the year 1929 will be paid. 

To the surprise of everyone, the figures which appeared in the public Press giving the valuations of real 
estate for the year 1928 indicated a reduction in such values of more than $415,000,000.00, and the best in- 
formation available indicates that there will be a decrease in valuations in the assessment of railroads in 
Chicago of approximately $50,000,000.00, making a total reduction in valuations of $465,000,000.00. The 
Southtown which embraces the loop area, has been the beneficiary of a decrease in tax valuations of 
$223,149,000.00. 

Instead of assessing property at its full, fair cash value, a so-called equalization factor of 37% was used. 
The 37% factor is based upon farm, village and city property in Illinois, all outside of Cook County. The 
condition now is that the City must apply against expenditures already made during the years 1928 and 1929 
such taxes as may be received on account of the reduced valuations for these years. The valuation for 1928 
is $565,000,000.00 less than the valuations assumed for that year and for 1929 is $665,000,000.00 less than 
that assumed for 1929. This is the crux of the situation. It is these reductions which have brought about 
the present difficulty. The estimated deficit of December 31, 1928, amounts to $9,922,854.00, and for 1929 it 
is estimated that the shortage will amount to $3,147,519.00, making a total deficit of $13,070,373.00. The 
estimated income from taxes in 1930, together with miscellaneous revenue, is about $6,000,000.00 less than 
the 1929 requirements. 

A further burden has been placed upon the City in that there will be required for the payment of 
interest on tax warrants issued during the years 1928 and 1929, all of which are now outstanding, a total of 
$4,354,219.00 as compared with the usual appropriation for this purpose of about $1,400,000.00. 

A further burden is placed upon the corporate fund in that it is necessary to appropriate for public 
benefits assessed against the City of Chicago in connection with various special assessment improvements 
on account of the exhaustion of street improvement bond funds and the failure of the public to approve 
issues of other bonds to pay such public benefits. This burden will amount to about $1,130,000.00 in 1930 
as compared to about $300,000.00 in 1929. This action is necessary in order to protect special assessment 
paper outstanding, to safeguard the interest of the public in connection with the cost of special assessment 
improvements to be made in the future. With a decreased revenue of about $6,000,000.00 and with an in- 
creased demand on account of special assessment public benefits chargeable against the City of Chicago, and 
the increased cost of interest over that ordinarily provided for, there is required a reduction in the ordinary 
expenses of the City government of more than $9,700,000.00, without consideration being given to the deficits 
which have accumulated during the years 1928 and 1929 on account of the large reduction in valuations of 
assessable property. 

In order to meet the required reduction of $9,700,000.00, it will be necessary to reduce all activities of 
the City government an average of 17%. This, however, can not be accomplished due to the fact that some 
items are irreducible, such as interest on tax warrants and judgments, municipal courts, board of election 
commissioners, and others. This, of necessity, requires larger reductions from other activities. As salaries 
constitute about 75% of the appropriations, it will become necessary to apply the greater portion of the re- 
ductions to man-power. 

A question may naturally be raised in the minds of some as to the justification that City authorities had 
in assuming increases in the valuations from year to year. The fact that building construction carried on 
in Chicago has in each year since 1923 approximated an average of $1,000,000.00 per calendar day and the 
almost unprecedented increase in appreciation of land values is sufficient answer to such questions. 

The following table is given for the purpose of showing the actual value of building permits issued in 
the City and the full valuation of real estate as determined by the assessing authorities, and indicates that until 
1928 the average increase in valuations was practically in accord with the assumptions made.

cost of local governments in Chicago to be $45.37 per capita as compared with New York's cost of $54.87 per 
capita and Detroit's cost of $5-0.48 per capita. 

The impression prevails generally among the citizen body of Chicago that the City government is re- 
sponsible for the expenditure of all tax moneys. This, however, is far from the facts. On account of the 
multiplicity of governments within the area of Chicago, the City receives for general corporate purposes only 
21 l/3c of each tax dollar collected. 

There was a reduction in the proportion of the tax dollar for City corporate purposes from 27 l/2c to 
21 l/3c over a period of nine years.
